Pentland Self Catering is situated in Orkney's ancient capital, Kirkwall, which can be traced back to Norse times in the 11th century when it was known as Kirkjuvagr.

There are many attractions on the doorstep including the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, Earl's and Bishop's Palaces and the Orkney Museum as well as a great selection of restaurants, cafes, bars and independent shops selling local arts, crafts, jewellery and fashion.

Orkney is the perfect escape, a place to relax and unwind. There are miles of clean beaches to explore, beautiful walks allowing you to appreciate the island wildlife and the fresh air and you can explore 6,000 years of history by visiting an amazing selection of Neolithic sites from the Ring of Brodgar to Skara Brae which have resulted in Orkney being given UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
